25m. Start right of the tree. Follow a line left to below the roof (peg) and pull over and up to the main-break (peg). Step left, climb to the overlap and then take the groove (thread) on the right which culminates in a hard moves leftwards (peg and thread). Move up and right and finish direct. Lower-off on vegetated-ledges above.

Another brilliant pitch. Tricky from the start and it just keeps on going! Balancy crux and long reach to finish.
